Justin Bieber and Wilhelmina model Chantel Jeffries.
Just when I started to praise him for his recent-run of consistent music releases, including “Confident” with Chance the Rapper, Justin Bieber goes and gets arrested. Obviously the Biebs isn’t the smartest when it comes to who he’s surrounding himself with as of late, and last night/early this morning the inevitable occurred.
According to CNN, Justin was charged with a D.U.I, resisting arrest and driving without a valid license after police witnessed him drag racing early Thursday morning in Miami Beach.
More details on the arrest can be found below, as well as Bieber’s mugshot for shits and giggles.
He is set to appear before a Miami-Dade County judge Thursday through a video link from the Turner Guilford Knight Correctional Center, where he is now an inmate, according to a jail official. His bond hearing will be from 1 to 1:30 p.m. ET, Miami-Dade corrections officials said.
Bieber “made some statements that he had consumed some alcohol, and that he had been smoking marijuana and consumed some prescription medication,” said Police Chief Raymond Martinez.
A Miami Beach officer saw Bieber driving a yellow Lamborghini in a race against a red Ferrari in a residential area of Miami Beach, Martinez said. The cars were speeding at about 55 to 60 mph in a 30 mph zone, he said.
Apparently, someone took ScHoolboy Q and A$AP Rocky’s “Hands On the Wheel” to the heart.
UPDATE: Footage of Justin Bieber’s arraignment and exit can be found below. The 19-year-old pop star appeared via video link from jail before leaving on top of an escalade waving to onlookers.
